I do. As far as how is it built, I do ./autogen.sh when the code comes
straight from SVN or ./configure when the code comes from a tarball.
The switches passed to it are:
--prefix=/opt/mono --with-preview=yes. Immediately after all of auto*
are ran, I proceed to edit the resulting libtool file with vi. What I
do is the earlier described s/cyg/ /g.
Then I do:
make && make install.
That is it -- for the most part :)
NOTE: Of course I only wish it was that easy every time. I usually
becomes a two or three day struggle to correct idiosyncrasies between
the Linux friendly build system and the not so tested Win32/Cygwin system.
Kornél, a lot more details about how I build Mono for the Windows
installer can be found in an article that I co-wrote with Kevin Shockey
that was published by O'Reilly.
hope this answers your questions.
